Direct Link To This Post Topic: Opinions on the Burton Mission Bindings
    Posted: Mar/24/2011 at 9:00pm
I'm getting really close to purchasing the Sierra Stunt and subsequently am considering the White Burton Missions to go with it. I personally have never had Burton bindings before but I know my buddy has the Cartels and has had some issues with the new school (if you will) toe strap coming loose. Just wondering what those of you who've had the Missions think of them overall...?

had the older ones, think 07/08. they are heavy, basic, and not durable. one of my buckles stop locking, and my buddy's, think the same model year, he busted his heelcup. he is a big guy though. i personally don't care for the flex that it's got, not consistent throughout the binding and can def. use more damping for my feet. m sure the new ones are improved. so check em out in person if you can and bring in your boots so you can try em on with your boots on. i picked some cartels latr the season and love em, world of difference, from comfort to performance, everything is better in the cartels. think the cartels are 07/08 as well.

they're good bindings, especially if you buy this years. if you're looking at last years or any years before, they are a little on the low end. i would look at cartels or especially triads if you can afford them

they are good bindigns but nothing great. if you want burtons spend the extra cash and get cartels. the extra money is definatly worthit if your actually going to use them. also union forces and rome 390s are amazing bindings you could look into.

if you want triads, my brother is selling L triads.

i have older missions and they are a little on the low end. the high back screws come loose every so often but i dont mind it too much.

eventually you'll want to upgrade to either unions or cartels, but if you can get the missions at a good price they should fit the bill.

Dont know y ur friend had problem with the toe strap on the Cartels.
Maybe the bindings were too big for his boots?
I got the Cartels and its working great for me.

I have 09-10 Mission (maybe on year) on my stunt right now. I think I like them as much as my 08 data. I had 08 mission too and I liked the data better.
Mission are a good buy for a stunt.

thanks for the opinions. i definitely keep hearing good things about union bindings and have seen those around for years. i've only had ride and rome bindings and definitely liked rome alot but i'm sometimes a little iffy on their color schemes because i like classic looking stuff-which is why i was drawn to the missions.

I own 07 Mission bindings and have held up so far. the only problem I've noticed is the toe strap coming loose sometimes. Other than that, I think they're solid bindings but I guess it depends on riding style.

I'm debating between Cartels and Forces for my next bindings.

"Dont know y ur friend had problem with the toe strap on the Cartels. Maybe the bindings were too big for his boots? I got the Cartels and its working great for me."

It was just the toe strap on my back binding (I ride goofy), that would be completely off when I finished a run. I adjusted, at my buddy Tim's suggestion (hey man), the length and it was fine. I'll have to wait and see how they hold up till next year, as the season down here is over :(

this has happened to me, the toe strap just comes off. its mostly a matter of adjusting it and getting it cinched down correctly.

well, personally I really like burton bindings for starters, they are really nice to put the backs down to hold and use to build jumps etc. I have the 08/09 missions, I think they are really nice and great bindings overall. But the ratchets, especially on the toe strap tend to not lock when they are frozen or get cold. I would hope that burton would have improved on this by now.

This is just my opinion, if i were to buy new pair of bindings the odds are that I would not get these, just since this is really my first real pair of bindings so I would like to explore different brands.

Overall I would suggest these

Thanks everyone for the thoughts. I went ahead and went with the Missions-they just look so damn good and I got enough positive feedback on them that I just had to.
